Volunteer in Nepal


Nepal is a country of high Himalayas, mountain passes, hills, valleys, gorges and rivers that criss-cross the landscapes. In the breathtakingly beautiful landscape, many unique and fascinating cultures have thrived luring visitors in thousands. They traverse difficult terrains to see the real beauty and go back fulfilled. But the hard topography has also meant difficulty in building roads, hospitals and schools. The people depend on agriculture for survival but what land they have is steep and not fertile. As a result, development is slow in Nepal and people still suffer from high level of illiteracy, malnutrition, environmental degradation and many other things.

There are, however, many grassroots organizations and NGOs actively working to tackle poverty, hunger, illiteracy and give people decent life. New Hope Volunteer works with many of these organizations and we’re now encouraging volunteers to come to Nepal to not only aid in the development of Nepal but also to see incredible natural beauty of the country.

Volunteer in Sri Lanka


Despite its small size, Sri Lanka has a wide range of geographical features and is rich in natural beauty. Much of Sri Lanka is covered in tropical forests, with hundreds of rivers flowing through them, often cascading in awesome waterfalls. There are also many spectaculars hills, pristine beaches and magnificent ruins to enjoy. But despite this beauty, Sri Lanka has suffered from years of civil war and natural calamities like Tsunami of 2004. These events have caused widespread devastation and made life very difficult for poor communities. There are many local grassroots organizations aiding the effort of the government to bring development and relief to the poor.

New Hope Volunteer works with many of these local organizations that are trying to empower the poor and bring development. Our volunteers will work along with local people and contribute in a small but meaningful way. In return, you’ll encounter immense gratitude and warm hospitality.

Volunteer in Sri Lanka program will open your heart and mind and enrich your life forever.

Turtle is an endangered species and if not conserved can soon become extinct. The scientists have predicted that we will forever lose turtles in 20 years unless we preserve the creature and its habitats. Volunteer now in turtle conservation project and protect Lora turtle’s nesting population. Volunteers will protect nests from poachers of all forms, including humans. Our volunteers will also work alongside local community and implement many management strategies.

What difference does this project make?

The conservation is fervently trying to ensure that the turtles remain for many years to come. Through the work the staff is carrying out, in ensuring the eggs get hatched and that they aren’t stolen, the turtles will continue to come ashore and we all get to enjoy the spectacle of seeing them gently dawdle on the sand. The volunteers will help the project accomplish the goals and its aims quickly and will bring enthusiasm and dynamism. The project is available year round but the best season is from May until December.

Highlights of the program

Our volunteers will perform night patrols, from starting from 8 pm and sometimes lasting for 4 hours, to check the eggs and turtles coming offshore to hatch. You will work in the hatcheries and collect eggs and rescue turtles. You’ll also take carapace and nest-dimension measurements and tag the rear flippers of the turtles. Other work includes cleaning the beach and helping the administration of the project.
